A blogger who suffered from bodydysmorphia is now pursuing a career as a plus-size model.
Danica Marjanovic was a size 10 and “miserable” in her teens, but is now happier than ever at size 16 after learning to accept her body.
The 24-year-old had battled body dysmorphia from a young age, and never felt happy about her slim figure despite losing a considerable amount of weight in her late teens.
She tells Daily Mirror : “When I look at photos from back then, I can remember the exact emotion that I felt at that certain time and I just remember being really unhappy and miserable.
“I wanted to start posting about body positivity online, I kind of thought to myself – what was the scariest thing I could do that would challenge those insecurities that I have about myself.
“My blog helps me deal with my mental health firstly because showing my body is obviously helping my self esteem which is a huge impact on my depression – I see it like my online diary.”
